As orator and as Speaker of the House for longer than any man in the century, he wielded great power, a compelling presence in Congress who helped preserve the Union in the antebellum period.

Remini gives us a full life of Webster from his birth, early schooling, and rapid rise as a lawyer and politician in New Hampshire to his equally successful career in Massachusetts where he moved in 1816. Remini treats both the man and his time as they tangle in issues such as westward expansion, growth of democracy, market revolution, slavery and abolitionism, the National Bank, and tariff issues. Webster's famous speeches are fully discussed as are his relations with the other two of the "great triumvirate", Henry Clay and John C. Calhoun. Throughout, Remini pays close attention to Webster's personal life - perhaps more than Webster would have liked - his relationships with family and friends, and his murky financial dealings with men of wealth and influence+-+3700958485143710ocn048516070book20020.21Remini, Robert VJoseph SmithHistoryBiography"In Joseph Smith, Robert Remini explores one of the Jacksonian epoch's major figures. The most important reformer and innovator in American religious history, Joseph Smith has remained a fascinating enigma to many both inside and outside the Mormon Church, which he founded." "Born in 1805, Smith grew up during the Second Great Awakening, when secular tumult had spawned radical religious fervor and countless new sects. His contemplative nature and soaring imagination - the first of his many visions occurred at the age of fourteen - were nurtured in the close, loving family created by his deeply devout parents. His need to lead and be recognized was met by his mission as God's vehicle for a new faith and by the multitudes who, mesmerized by his charm and charismatic preaching, flocked to the Mormon Church. Remini brings Smith into unprecedented focus and contextualizes his enduring contributions to American life and culture within the distinctive characteristics of an extraordinary age."--Jacket+-+K835855215141416ocn000265377book19510.47Remini, Robert VMartin Van Buren and the making of the Democratic PartyHistoryA biography of Van Buren for the years 1821-1828 and a political history of the nation and of New York for the same years.

Remini's fascinating recounting of the Compromise of 1850, a titanic act of political will that only a skillful statesman like Clay could broker.

Remini explores the arrival and migration of Native Americans throughout the Western Hemisphere and their achievements; the discovery of the New World by Europeans and the establishment of colonies by the Spanish, French, English, and Dutch; the causes of the American Revolution; the founding of a republic under the Constitution; the formation of political parties; the War of 1812 and the resulting economic and cultural changes; the democratic impetus during the Jacksonian era; westward expansion and the Mexican War; the struggle over slavery, which led to the Civil War; Reconstruction and the rise of big business; the emergence of the United States as a world power; the descent into the Great Depression; the global conflicts of the twentieth century; the rise of conservatism; and the outbreak of terrorism here and abroad. In addition, Remini illustrates how former English subjects slowly transformed themselves into Americans, and shows how a collection of sovereign, independent colonies united to create a workable, constantly evolving republican government whose democratic principles reflect the changing mores and attitudes of the citizens it represents. He explains the reasons for the nation's unique and enduring strengths, its artistic and cultural accomplishments, its genius in developing new products to sell to the world, and its abiding commitment to individual freedoms--From publisher description+-+109683515511407ocn007717431book19810.27Remini, Robert VAndrew Jackson and the course of American freedom, 1822-1832BiographyTraces Jackson's senatorial career, his presidential campaigns, and his first administration as president8599ocn016685223book19880.50Remini, Robert VThe legacy of Andrew Jackson : essays on democracy, Indian removal, and slavery7904ocn018559219book19890.35Remini, Robert VThe Jacksonian eraHistory+-+K68404733511ocn726769868book0.47Remini, Robert VMiscellaneous papers+-+9335688485+-+9335688485Fri Mar 21 16:02:06 EDT 2014batch23478
